Raila Odinga’s wife Ida has said her son Fidel can make a good politician.
Ida said nothing can stop Fidel, moulded by his grandfather Jaramogi Oginga Odinga who was a “great politician”.
“He was nurtured by his grandfather and his father (Raila) who is also a politician. We cannot rule out the fact that he can also become a politician,” Ida said. She was speaking at KBC’s Radio Mayienga FM during a Thursday morning talk show.
Ida however did not reveal whether or not Fidel will seek an elective post in the 2017 elections. “Fidel can make his own decisions. I cannot decide for him because he is a grown up. He can choose to contest or not,” she said.
She said nobody in their family has asked Fidel to run for any elective post.
